Former Diesel, Woolrich, Valentino and Barbour designer Massimo Rossetti created Parajumpers as an outerwear company that construct jackets and parkas for the most demanding weather conditions. It is dedicated to the profession of “the men of the 210th Rescue Squadron, based in Anchorage, Alaska, are highly trained for extreme rescues and recoveries in the wildest, most remote and hostile corners of the Globe. Whether it be ships adrift at sea, rock climbers stuck atop a 4,000 meter peak, or submariners sunk at unimaginable depths, these men are called to intervene.”
